♪ >> whoa, watch out, another bombshell from obamacare. the plan you get from your employer may be cancel. good morning, everyone, we're going to have a full report on this, but here is the bottom line. tens of millions of people will be getting those cancellation notices. this affects the coverage that a majority of americans receives. this is a projection by the administration itself, forbes dug it out of the federal register and we are not done. the obamacare debacle rolls on and we know that on day one of the rollout, precisely six people were signed up. and on top of that, top hospitals across the nation are dropping out. they don't want anything to do with obamacare. apple, amazon, netflix, facebook, twitter they're all in the news today and we are covering it. "varney & company" is about to begin. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater
energy and commerce committee. and republicans say the web site failures are just more evidence obamacare is unsustainable. >> this is an incompetent rollout, symptomatic of a liberal ideology that believes government should be running our health care. i think this is just the tip of the iceberg. eventually, they'll fix the internet problems. >> reporter: democrats have also criticized it, hoe they say the government -- though they say the government will eventually fix the problems. administration officials say the site should be working for most by the end of next month. back to you. dagen: rich, thank you so much for that, rich edson in washington, of course, we will be watching that, and here with more is tevi choi, good the see you as always. what's the point of having these hearings? what's going to come out of them that amounts to anything in terms of getting this thing up and runningsome. >> well, that's a good question. you always wonder if there's any benefit to be had to these hearings while you're still trying to fix the problem. the point is, first of all, there are a lot of
in obamacare, and because the weakness in the economy now means that janet yellen and federal reserve will keep on printing dollars. you have this extraordinary position of obamacare falling to pieces, absolute chaos, yet the stock market opening a little higher, within 100 points of its all-time record high. martha: very interesting. we'll see where it goes. stuart, see you later. bill: we just realized this a moment ago, the front page of healthcare.gov is different. this was the look for three weeks a young woman, smiling face. she has now been replaced screen right with handy icons showing all the different ways you sign up. no word why the change. she is no longer the face of healthcare.gov. martha: saw her every day. you think she didn't want to be on the front anymore? she said, hey guys, i am not sure i want i want i want to bed with this particular website? if you're out there, we like to hear from you. what is your story? come on over. bill: fox news alert on this the white house on damage control again. the president now saying he did not know that the u.s. was secretly spying on doz

. >> the problem with obamacare is not just the website, it's the law. i heard from hundreds of constituents who see premiums rise and policies cancelled. many are losing their plans. >> after a failed strategy to kill the law by shutting the government split the party in two, republicans are unified in attacking problems on the website which, when functioning, will help millions obtain shirns under obamacare. >> i don't think anybody would deny the fact on either side of the political either. these facts are nothing short of a disaster. >> when pressed marilyn tavenner was unable to say how many people got insurance through the website. >> are you getting the numbers? >> am i getting the unless? not yet. >> you have no numbers of. >> we'll have them available mid-november. >> if you don't have insurance by 31 march, you face a fine. as the problems persist democrats are joining the call to delay the deadline. marilyn tavenner vowed to fix what is wrong. >> i want to assure you healthcare.gov can and will be fixed. we are working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience you deserve.
obamacare, folks. (laughter) you see, the rollout has been one disaster after the next. actually, you can't even get to the next disaster, you get an error page that says 404: disaster not found.

obamacare, i don't think she was expecting a warm welcoming. what are the democrats saying? >> well, at least a few have asked her to modify the plan. one asked to extend the sign-on period. and she said four months would be enough. and another one, a democrat from georgia pointed out that he voted against the affordable care act in the first place, and he is also asking the secretary to do something republicans wanted to do, which is to delay the mandate for at least a year. but most of the democrats are trying to point out how the plan is working, and pointing to what they say is hypocrisy on the part of republicans. here is representative engel from new york. >> it is the law, and i find it disconcerting that my republican colleagues have done nothing but root for this to fail, and now there is this big show that they are upset from keeping people from signing up fast up. the website will be fixed and millions of americans will be able to get coverage. >> and secretary sebelius is saying that the repair work, the fixes that are being done now will be finished by the end of novemb
